Sheikh Mohammed ranked 'coolest' celebrity

"Young males in the GCC have ranked Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum as ‘coolest celebrity’, placing Dubai’s ruler above global stars including Brad Pitt and Johnny Depp.
Sheikh Mohammed was ranked first among males and fourth overall in a survey commissioned by Communicate magazine. The survey asked 500 young people aged between 15 and 24 in the Gulf region to name their ‘coolest’ and ‘least cool’ celebrities.
The overall ‘coolest’ ranking placed three American actors at the top: Brad Pitt, Johnny Depp and George Clooney. Respondents were not prompted for answers. ..............". Article continues.

I vote for him being the coolest local seleb(?) too & would like to add some cool pictures from a private source & few more.
Only one question: is it appropriate for a Member of the Royal Family to be mentioned in the same list with the American actors??

This poll was only conducted in the Gulf, I am not surprised he topped the list.

I am American and I'll vote for Sheikh Mo, he is a great visionary.

Update:
Dubai's ruler Shaikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum is expecting his first baby with Jordan's Princess Haya in December this year.
In 2004, the 58-year-old Shaikh Mohammed, married the daughter of late King Hussein, also half-sister to Jordan's King Abdullah. A favourite of celebrity magazines in the Arab world, the 33-year-old princess has been involved in several humanitarian projects in Africa and Asia and was recently appointed a UN peace envoy.
